We had a late dinner in the restaurant. Seated at the beautiful bar, we were treated to delicious signature cocktails and an excellent scallop and risotta dinner with kale salad.

Special place. Lovely food. Exceptional service. Strange room. We loved the spicy crab and corn chowder the halibut (slightly dry but great dish). The lobster risotto was a little cheesy but loaded with lobster. Lovely experience.

Yes, it is kid friendly. I don't remember having a kid's menu, but they are very accommodating and can do kid friendly dishes such as: French fries or pasta with butter or red sauce
